About the Book

Killing Lions is the dialog between a young man trying to find his life's direction and an older man offering wisdom and insight on the timeless issues of the journey toward adulthood. Every man, young or not, can benefit from the life lessons John Eldredge has passed on to his son.

Book Synopsis

Accept the wild, daring adventure of becoming a man. Learn about the potential pitfalls, joys, and triumphs that lay ahead as you begin the journey to become the man God created you to be.

We all desire to be self-sufficient and find our own direction as we pursue our dreams. We want to know it all and never ask for help. But sooner or later the thrill of independence gets lost in the fog of isolation and uncertainty.

It's time to take the pressure off. We were never meant to figure life out on our own. We need mentors and guides to show us the way and share their earned wisdom. Killing Lions was born out of a series of weekly phone calls between Sam Eldredge, a young writer in his twenties, and his dad, best-selling author John Eldredge.

Join the conversation as a John and Sam talk about real life issues and struggles, including:

  • Figuring out a career and calling
  • Dealing with money
  • Identity and validation
  • Love and dating
  • Decision making
  • Spiritual warfare
  • Questions and doubts about God
  • Getting married
  • Chasing dreams
  • Setting off on your adventure when circumstances are uncertain.

Killing Lions is more than fatherly advice, it is an invitation into a journey: either to be the son who receives fathering or the father who learns what must be spoken. Rooted in Scripture and full of honest wisdom, Killing Lions will help you face and conquer the trials that lay ahead as you become the man God created you to be.
